A Prayer of Saint Augustine for Spiritual Strength in the Battle

A huge thank you to Kendall Harmon for posting this wonderful prayer today at TitusOneNine. I needed to pray this as I have been feeling overwhelmed by my own weakness and my tendency toward negligence in completing some hard tasks. – Karen

O God, our Father, we are exceedingly frail, and indisposed to every virtuous and gallant undertaking: Strengthen our weakness, we beseech thee, that we may do valiantly in this spiritual war; help us against our own negligence and cowardice, and defend us from the treachery of our unfaithful hearts; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord.
